Gathering for Postdoctoral Science (GPS)
The monthly GPS meeting, organized by the Postdoc Society, gives Cedars-Sinai postdocs an opportunity to present their research and network with other postdocs.
National Postdoctoral Appreciation Week (NPAW)
Every September institutions across the country, including Cedars-Sinai, celebrate the achievements and contributions of postdocs. In 2013 we celebrated NPAW with an open house event (featuring resources, freebies, a prize drawing and a birthday cake to celebrate the Postdoc Society’s 4th birthday), a networking social event at a local bar, and a seminar on careers in industry.
In 2014, NPAW will be September 15-19.
